Fabric Painting


For a small outlay on a few colours and a suitable brush, fabric painting opens up endless opportunities for transforming clothing and soft furnishings.  It enables unique and functional art.   

T-shirt painting is the most common but tablecloths, cushion covers, curtains or wall hangings are also popular.

DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Paints

DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Acrylics are super soft fabric paints that are opaque and give excellent coverage and washing durability on fabric. They are soft, like fabric dyes, but do not require the addition of a medium or heat setting. SoSoft Fabric Acrylics are permanent and can be brushed, stamped, sponged, or stenciled.

Also available in the SoSoft range are glitters, metallics, dimensionals, puff paints, shimmering pearls and neons. 

SoSoft Mediums & Specialty Paints:

DecoArt's range of SoSoft Mediums and Speciality Paints offer another dimension to fabric painting.

Color Resist:  Color Resist works as a masking medium for fabric painting projects. Use Color Resist where you do not want paint on your projects. Removing the mask will allow the color of the fabric or basecoat to show through a design created by Color Resist.

Pearl Medium:  Use with SoSoft Fabric Acrylics to make pearl fabric paints. Mix equal parts of medium and paint.

Transparent Medium:  A medium to turn opaque colors of So-Soft Fabric Acrylics and Shimmering Pearls into a transparent fabric paint. Very effective when working with iron-on and shaded transfers.

Ultra White:  Ultra White is a super white basecoat paint for painting on dark fabrics. It enhances the brightness and true colors of the top coat.

Fabric Medium:  Fabric Painting Medium, when mixed with Americana Acrylics, produces a washable, permanent paint for fabrics. It improves penetration and bonds to the fabric while helping to prevent, cracking, peeling, and fading. Fabric Painting Medium is suitable for clothing and home decor fabric projects.
